Default User email account password change

Does ISPConfig3 allow users to change their own email account password out of the box?

If not, since Squirrelmail is installed as a webmail client, is it possible to use the change_sqlpass Squirrelmail plugin to allow users to change their own passwords?

On my current production server, which is non-ISPConfig, I had followed the HowTo below which installed the change_sqlpass plugin. I am thinking about adopting the HowTo to my new Debian Lenny Perfect Server setup.

I think that should be possible.

Thanks Till.

The link you provided links right back to the How To Forge. Here is the direct link in case anyone is looking to save a step in the future.

I took a couple of additional steps in the database. I create a new user that only had the ability to select and update the email and password fields within the email_user table.
